Windows 7: system boots straight to bios. New build

system boots straight to bios. New build

Asus sabertooth 990fx rev 2.0 bios:2005
And fx8350
Corsiar vengeance 4GB x2 (8GB) 1600mhz
HiatchI 500GB hard drive 7200rpm
Vtx HD7850 X-edition 1GB
Win power 850w
Corsiar h80i clc

Now that's hardware out of the way let me explain my problem.
Built my new pc yesterday and when I turned it on it booted straight to bios. So I set the boot priority to my hdd and saved. Upon restart it again booted straight to the bios. Also the boot device led it lit red.

It does the same when I set DVD drive to boot first (for reinstallation of Windows) it always boots straight to the bios
When in the bios I can press F8 and manually choose the device which will then load it. That's how I managed to format the hdd and installed fresh Windows 7 on it (twice)

So now I can manually boot into Windows. By selecting boot priority override and selecting my hdd. I've installed the Asus drivers from the sabertooth install CD. The system also feels laggy.

I've also tried settings in the bios like set sata ports to IDE from achi and disable fast boot. But nothing works. I have also removed the cmos, pressed direct key (just in case it was stuck) and tried mem ok.

Can anyone help? As I don't want to select hdd in the bios everything . Want to turn the system on.

Also forgot to add. It remembers my boot priority settings and all settings I change.

Many folks clear this by doing a Clear CMOS procedure. That is not the same as just removing the 3v battery (that only resets the clock - EDIT: and restores the BIOS defaults).
Did you do a true Clear CMOS?
  • Note all your current BIOS settings
  • Shut down the computer > remove the power cord.
  • Remove the 3v battery.
  • Move the CLRTC jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3.
  • Touch a metal part of the case and Press and Hold the reset button for approx. 30 seconds to discharge all power from the board.
  • Put the CLRTC jumper back on pins 1-2.
  • Replace the 3v battery > replace the power cord > boot.
  • Immediately go back into BIOS and reset all your preferred settings. If the CLRTC worked you will need to reset the date and time in BIOS.

I didn't try a full cmos clear procedure. Will try it now.
Thanks for the reply and help

Recheck ALL of you PSU connections to the board and the drive(s). If you updated the BIOS to 2005, you may try downloading it again and use the BIOS Flashback feature to re-flash it.

Well done and glad to hear you fixed it. Most keyboards are plug and play, that's why. It was maybe throwing a no keyboard error.
